Mass Murder for Muhammad!
We continue to be shocked and dismayed by the denial of some Muslims about their own Islamic religion. Just a few days ago a local Muslim wrote a letter to the editor, claiming that his religion is a religion of peace. He lamented that so many think of it as a faith characterized by war and bloodshed.
In order to substantiate his mistaken belief, this writer quoted from chapter 5 of the Koran, Allah loves not those who create disorder (5:65). He concluded that it is clear that violence has no place in Islam. Does this seem strange to hear? Any rational reader knows that daily this is violated by dozens, even hundreds and thousands, of Islamists. Surely this letter-writing advocate of Islam is being dishonest about his religions peaceful nature. This was a mistake that President George Bush also made when he said that this was a religion of peace! Many quotations from the Koran can show the fallacy of this oft-repeated lie.
I had to ponder: How is it possible for any sane Islamist or anyone else to deny the bloodshed associated with Islam? How can anyone call this a religion of peace? The facts are obvious to any thinking person who is unprejudiced and who looks into the array of facts.
For some days now, the media has been filled with news of the trial of Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the radical Muslim Army psychiatrist who went on a violent rampage at Fort Hood in Texas on November 5, 2009. During that fateful day, Hasan opened fire at his fellow-soldiers. During this massacre, Hasan killed 13 people and injured more than 30 others. He claims that he did it to support and defend the radical Taliban.
Although this is current news, reports nearly every day give further evidence of mass killings by radical Muslims. Just here we are not condemning people indiscriminately, for the Koran itself is filled with references to killing and war on behalf of their god Allah against the infidels. Of course, this is a misnomer, since it is the Muslim who is the unbeliever (the infidel) since they absolutely reject Jesus as the Son of God. Further, they reject the God of the Bible since the God of Scripture has a Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. The Koran is thus a war book. We are thankful that many liberal Muslims are not following the dictates of this holy book, thus they wouldnt want to kill others. But in so doing, they are not really following the dictates of their own religion.
Again and again, we are reminded that those who do take the Koran seriously are willing to kill as many as possible. Ironically, many of these murderers actually kill their fellow-Muslims, even in their holy month of Ramadan or during the funeral of slain Muslims.
Typical of this continuing bloodshed is a recent news article that states: Dozens are slain in Nigeria attacks. Nigeria. Suspected Islamic militants wearing army fatigues gunned down 44 people praying at a mosque in northeast Nigeria, and another 12 civilians died in an apparently simultaneous attack.
Here is another news item: Gunmen kill 6 in attack on former minister. PakistanGunmen shot to death six people and wounded 15 in an attack on a former provincial minister outside a mosque in southwest Pakistan on Friday, police said.
Another report says: Militants bombs kill mourners at funerals. PakistanThe living were honoring the dead on both sides of the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan on Thursday when militant bombers struck, killing at least 44 people in two attacks that coincided with one of the holiest days on the Muslim calendar.
Yet another report reads: Death toll in Iraq hits monthly high. More than 1,000 people were killed in Iraq in July, the highest monthly death toll in five years, the U.N. said Thursday, a grim figure that shows rapidly deteriorating security as sectarian tensions sour nearly two years after U.S. troops withdrew from the country. Violence has been on the rise all year, but the number of attacks against civilians and security forces has spiked during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, which began early last month.
It is important to see that much of this violence is directed against fellow-Muslims, while some is directed against outsiders in the area. We know that Islam was spread through the sword. One nation after another fought and fell as Muhammads followers marched across the Middle East in the 700s as well as North Africa and on into southwestern Europe. Even Catholic Spain fell and the Muslim invaders were only stopped as they reached France. Otherwise, Europe might have become Muslim!
Today, suicide bombers across the Middle East have slaughtered hundreds and hundreds of people. But what is the result of this mayhem?
The Bible is clear that whose who commit murder are worthy of death and are storing up wrath for themselves in the day of wrath from God (Romans 1:29, 32; 2:5). Further, no murderer has eternal life abiding in him (1 John 3:15). Obviously, one who murders does not love the one he murders, and Scripture says, He who does not love abides in death (1 John 3:14). So serious is this matter of murder and killing, that murderers will be sent to the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death (Revelation 21:8). In summary; the one who murders another (and does not repent) will experience the burning wrath or anger of God. He is worthy of death and will experience the second death. He does not have eternal life but will be sent to the lake of fireor hell!
The ironic matter about these truths of God is that a Muslim suicide bomber kills himself along with many others (thus he is also guilty of self-murder) but he has convinced himself (with the help of his Muslim authorities) that he will immediately be ushered into Paradise and be given 40 virgins to satisfy his lusts for all eternitywhile he enjoys the blessings of carnal pleasure!
Can we see how diabolical Satan is in all of this? Satan, the deceiver, convinces his follower (the radical Muslim) that he will immediately go to a place of bliss because of his hatred, deception, and murder. However, in reality, he will immediately go to Hades, a place of torment (Luke 16:23) and agony (vv. 24-25). He will be sent to a place where he is separated from God and from all of the blessed, without hope, for all eternity! (Luke 16:26-31). The deceived Muslim will receive the very opposite from what he expects! The Muslims who killed several thousands of innocent people on September 11, 2001 viewed pornography the night before their suicide mission and expected to be able to continue their carnal pleasure after they blew themselves up. Instead, they began an eternity of excruciating pain and anguish for their hateful sin. How utterly tragic!
Muslim leaders who urge their followers to commit suicide and murder others bear a special blame and surely will receive the hottest place in hell. But the spiritually blind who are following these blind leaders will also be sent to unending anguish along with their leaders. And all others who support Islamic principles and make people content in their sin and unbelief will likewise be sent to the same fate. Remember, Jesus said, Unless you believe that I am He, you will die in your sins (John 8:24). Without question, the one who dies in his sin because he refuses to accept Jesus Christ, the divine Remedy for sin, will experience the wrath of God because of that sin and unbelief (Mark 16:16; Revelation 21:8).
The next time you read of Muslims killing fellow-Muslims as well as non-Muslims, think of these things. Be aware of the power of Satan, the great Deceiver (Revelation 12:9), and how blinded unthinking Muslim bombers are, as they perpetrate hatred, violence, lies and deception, murder, and vast evil. Urge others to see this mass deception and wickedness and repent while they may.
